About research on Agroecosystems and Sustainable Landscapes (ASL) in CIAT

Evidence-based sustainability

Policies and practices for sustainable management of agroecosystems and landscapes requires science-based evidence. ASL envisions achieving agricultural sustainability through three interlinked research themes: soils and water management, landscape restoration and increased understanding of ecosystem services and environmental impacts. This work aims to improve livestock management, maximize food production and provide natural services to communities in ways that are efficient, environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive, helping achieve both sustainable intensification and landscape restoration.
